Alternative Mindmapping Apps

Alternative Mindmapping Apps | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is one of those skills that students can really benefit from, whether it is just to organise what they need to know, showing what they already know or even scaffolding a piece of writing. I love the ease of mind mapping on the iPad especially those apps that allow you to go back and modify or enhance an existing mind map.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

A good range of free and priced apps.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, February 15, 2013 8:20 PM

It seems that laying out a graphic organizer for specific topics should be obvious. The resources listed here will get you started. They also present the opportunity for a teacher to draw on their features to have learners create their own mind maps.
